Chef Chao

Chef Worachai Thapthimkuna or better known to the world as Chef Chao is bringing a new Asian Fusion menu to Nia and to the West Loop, Chicago’s Culinary hotspot.

Chef Chao formally of Union Sushi & Barbeque brings a highly-skilled culinary background, and an Asian Fusion menu that is eye-catching with its colors and presentation. He is known for his use of traditional Japanese flavors and dishes and elevating them to a whole new experience.

While Nia has been a tradition in the West Loop as the longest established restaurant, the new and unique dishes being created in the kitchen of Nia by Chao are sure to be a great welcome to the West Loop culinary scene. From the Crab Fried Rice to the Prok Katsu Curry there is something new and exciting for everyone to try.Asian_Fusion_Food
